"Many web portals appear to have caught on to an article claiming that CDs are coming to an end, as major labels allegedly plan to abandon the format by end of 2012. The article claims that CDs will be mostly dropped but used for some limited editions and such. The labels however aren’t interested in commenting the allegations."
"Activision has apparently uninvited Dutch porn star Kim Holland from a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 party in Amsterdam. The gaming outfit was apparently unaware of Holland’s previous works, so to speak, and when it pulled her invitation shortly before the event. Writing in her blog, Holland said she was unpleasantly surprised by the decision and described it as hypocritical. Holland is a big fan of the CoD series and she seems to be a keen gamer. Holland then went on to question Activision’s moral priorities."
"Happy Halloween from the Google Doodle, which uses mammoth pumpkins and some pretty sophisticated pumpkin carving to send its holiday message. It's no trick and all treat. The Google Doodle often uses a static image when it temporarily revamps its home page. But Monday, users are treated to a time-lapse video showing huge pumpkins being sliced and diced and, as the sun goes down, emitting a flickering, ghostly glow -- and the name of the search engine, of course."
"You may now exhale, Canadian journalists, bloggers, and Twitter users. Canada's Supreme Court has unanimously decided that posting a hyperlink to an allegedly defamatory article does not constitute defamation itself. "I would conclude that a hyperlink, by itself, should never be seen as 'publication' of the content to which it refers," opined Supreme Court Justice Rosalie Silberman Abella, speaking for the panel reviewing the matter of Crookes versus Newton.
"Before there was Google+ there was Google Buzz, the company's big effort to stake a claim in the social networking space. That, of course, didn't exactly work out for the search giant, and it even managed to spark some lawsuits and attract the eye of the FTC. Now Google has finally swept it under the rug in a bit of fall cleaning, stating in a blog post today that Google Buzz and the Buzz API will be shut down "in a few weeks," and that it will now focus solely on Google+ instead."
"Just two weeks ago, at its 2011 f8 developer conference, Facebook confirmed it had 800 million active users. Let’s put that into perspective for you: there were only 757 million people using the Internet worldwide in 2004, according to Internet World Stats. Why did Royal Pingdom, an uptime monitoring service, choose the year 2004 as the year of comparison? Well, many tend to forget that Facebook is just a seven-year-old company: it was founded in February 2004."
